About the Community Environment Fund

The Ministry wants to work with you to help make a positive difference to the environment.

The Community Environment Fund (CEF) provides funding so New Zealanders are empowered to take environmental action. The purposes of the CEF are:

  • strengthening partnerships
  • raising environmental awareness
  • encouraging participation in environmental initiatives in the community.

The 2016 CEF funding round was open for submissions from 18 April to 2 May 2016.  

For more information see Community Environment Fund funding round 8 – April 2016

The dates for the next funding round have not yet been set.
